The only hiccup there is that the v1/j1 use an aptina sensor, not a sony one.

Re: Which Alpha-mountainbike fulltime frame camera

If you need 5fps, get the a900. If not, get the 850. Simple as that.

Re: Are we headed to a mirrorless future?

I can't predict the future but I'll say "no" and I'll back that up with I'd rather shoot film 100% and scan it then go to a full time EVF system. If Ricoh announced K mount was going to be mirror less only I'd instantly sell everything without a single thought. For the same reason I aband...

Re: Are we headed to a mirrorless future?

Thanks for the quick reply guys.

I've thought quite a bit about what the AF module might look like. One idea I've had is a pdaf sensor located behind a semi-transparent sensor (which doesn't exist right now). Cool concept, eh?

Are we headed to a mirrorless future?

Thinking about this and wondering. The SLT is a great idea, but the little bit of light loss from the mirror isn't the greatest. So the Nikon 1's on the sensor AF go me thinking. Will there be a point, say 10 years from now, where auto-focus and electronic viewfinder technology will advance to the p...

Re: Challenge #43: “Autumn; From Summer To ”- Voting ends No

I hope you'll re-consider your purpose, and you'll be back to the Challenge's Forum soon. Eh. In all honesty when I first join here, I participated in a few of these. Then it was made a 1 person kingdom, and I stopped participating. I had forgotten why. Now I remember, and I'll just ignore this cor...

Fine with me. I guess it's your little kingdom here and you are going to play dictator. Worst thing they ever did here was make this " Aster's photo challenge". If you need that kind of power trip, then have at it. :roll: If somebody want to gain the system, all it takes is 1 post to faceb...

. Well, first of all a tiny comment: "Life as we know on planet Earth has never been fair nor is it now. That statement right there is a cop out 100%. Just because "the world is unfair" doesn't mean that we can't strive to make these as fair as possible. Please tell me how some one c...

Remember, this is a photo challenge , not a photo contest . Then why vote at all????? :? Please don't be confused by my criticism here. I could care less about the "winning" aspect of this. My main concern is fairness to all that enter. Currently the way this is set up, it is not fair. Pe...

Hi Sebastian , : ) First I’d like to thank you for taking the time to check the facts about the poll features and also for actually being aware of my actual motive for limiting the times the voter can vote; I want the contributors and the voters, who are mostly the same people, to search in their h...
